experience, and largely saw the confrontation through his eyes and the way the defense portrayed it. but she couldn't identify with trayvon martin's female friend who what haitian-american. so that term creepy-ass cracka that rachel jeantel said trayvon used, you're saying that's simply how they talked to each other? >> sure. that's the way they talk. >> and did you see that as a negative statement or a racial statement as the defense suggested? >> i don't think it's really racial. i think it's just everyday life, the type of life that they live and how they're living and the environment that they're living in. >> so you didn't find her credible as a witness? >> no. >> so juror b-37 was part of a six-member panel. all female, one african-american. one of our guests said the trial was over when the jury was seated. do you think that's a fair statement? and more broadly, is racial bias built into the system? let's talk about it with sunny hostin, jeffrey toobin, jose baez, julie blackman is a jury consultant in the martha stewart case. robert horshorn, jury consultant and defense attorney mark

claiming self-defense. >>> what anthony wiener's sexting partner wants to say to the man, his wife and what the voters say. >>> the zimmerman juror b 29 the only non-white juror on the six-member panel. the first to show her face and reveal her first name, maddi. she says she owes trayvon martin's family an apology because she ultimately had no choice but to acquit a man she calls a murderer. she spoke to robin roberts. the interview aired on abc's world news. >> what was your first -- >> my first vote was second-degree murder. >> second-degree murder. >> in between that nine hours it was hard. a lot of us had wanted to find something bad, something we could connect to the law. for myself, he's guilty. because the evidence shows he's guilty. >> he's guilty of -- >> killing trayvon martin but as the law was read to me, if you have no proof that he killed him intentionally, you can't find -- you can't say he's guilty. >> did you want to step out at all? did you want to quit? >> i was the juror that was going to give them the hung jury. i was. i fought until the end. it's hard for me to sleep.

is. that's what the defense did. that's why what the defense did was so masterful. that's why this prosecution, frankly, was abismil. >> mark was half right, better than his average. the prosecution did make a mistake -- >> just remember, jeff, you were 100% wrong all the way during this trial. so i'll give you -- >> that's not true, anyway. >> that's true, you were better than sunny was. >> thanks, thank, mark. >> the prosecution did make a big mistake in closing about not addressing the jury instructions in a more direct way, however, the fact is the evidence matters, and there was not a lot of evidence here where the prosecution could point to saying that george zimmerman committed this crime. >> i want to bring ben crump into this conversation, and benjamin, you spoke about how frustrating it's been to hear from two jurors now, who have both said basically they were confused by the jury instructions. let me play a little bit more from the juror on that. listen to this. >> i was the juror that was going to give them the hung jury. i was. i fought until the end. >> do you ha

and mental illness like any courtroom you've ever seen in that the judge, prosecutor, defense attorney, probation, treatment professionals, everyone gets together and work as a team to actually try to help drug addicted offenders get lives back and get clean and sober. >> so this is for first-time, non-violent drug offenders, correct? i can say that slower, but that's who -- that's who it's for primarily, right? >> actually, it's for offenders who are really pretty seriously engaged in the criminal justice system. they may have been on probation many times and in and out of jail. the key is they are seriously addicted to drugs and nothing else is working. so this team, this drug court team fashions a sentence or a plea agreement that connects them to treatment services that truly helps get them their life back. >> great. and what is the success rate of drug court? >> 75% of the graduates never see another pair of handcuffs. we heard that in the psa but that doesn't tell the entire story. actually, we cut crime in half compared to jail and prison. so we literally can cut crime up to 50%

and they do good work and also a strong conventional defense. but it's a matter of priority and i really believe if we pull this thread, we'll find a bigger issue here. the issue is money and power. there are many corporations who benefit from these programs, as well as employees, i should say appointed officials within the intelligence community who bounce back and forth between government and corporate service and it's a cash cow to be quite frank. we have other, i believe, issues that politicians are ignoring because there is concern about votes. again, i'll go back to the southern border. certain politicians do not want to talk about security there. i would love to hear from some that are retire that have no fear of retired border officials that talk about how secure the border is. >> if i can interject, anderson, one defish see in that number, it doesn't state whatever was failed couldn't have been foiled with the patriot act section 215 in the fourth amendment. just to say we foiled something doesn't mean you have to go to that dragnet surveillance to discover what needed to be dis
